Design Assets

Users within Aurora have the ability to create design assets. A design asset is a file that was created for a specific design within Aurora. Design assets are binary assets, such as screenshots, DXF files or PDFs. For example, when a user takes a CAD screenshot in the CAD view (2D or 3D) or generates a layout DXF file, the asset (file) gets persisted and can be queried through the API. Design assets can also be uploaded via the API.

Currently, the supported assets are:

  • The Layout DXF file downloaded by an Aurora user

  • The CAD screenshot (2D or 3D) downloaded by an Aurora user

  • The CAD screenshot automatically captured on last in-app save in Aurora. This feature is not provisioned by default in all tenants. For availability, please contact your Aurora account team.

  • Racking assets uploaded through the API such as spec sheets, installation manuals, certification documents, CAD files, and engineering reports.
